Overwatch apparently started a trend of adding small rodents as heroes. Hammond and his wrecking ball add a different dimension to Overwatch’s character types, and now Divinity: Original Sin 2 players will have the chance to see how a diminutive rodent performs on the battlefield. Bandai Namco and Larian Studios today announced that Sir Lora, the Squirrel Knight, will debut in the definitive edition of Divinity: Original Sin 2 launching on August 31 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Sir Lora is a part of the Knights of Drey, which Bandai Namco describes as an “order of furry knights who believe in the coming of the Great Acorn.” When this new companion is added to your party, you’ll unlock new skill-crafting recipes, and will be put on a quest to unearth the Great Acorn.

For players who are already experiencing Divinity: Original Sin 2 in Xbox One’s Preview program, a new update with 4K and HDR support will be deployed on July 19. This patch also brings better performance, improved AI, and a variety of bug fixes. 

You can take your first look at the menacing Sir Lora and his mount in the video below:
